(Even if the rubber occasionally lacks the ITTF logo, ...) it immediately surprises with its flawless, slightly sticky, surface. The bright, yellow sponge, which is specified by the manufacturer with 40 ° degrees, feels softer when playing ( - maybe 38 °), is of good quality and therefore easy to cut. The weight of the rubber, cut on my blade (150 x 158 mm), is 38 to 40 g. In combination with a not too hard blade, this rubber has a good control, sufficient speed and spin. (... and a medium throw angle!) If you are looking for a super cheap allround rubber for beginners, or if you are also an economical "advanced" one, you are absolutely right here. This is the only viable allround rubber (... for the international market !!!), which you can buy in pairs for 11 € (at E Bay) !!!! - Absolutely unbeatable. (Comparable with this rubber would be only the Focus 3 Snipe, which is a little softer (or more elastic), faster and more spidery but also more than twice as expensive.)

This rubber is maybe a little bit lighter than traditionnal chinese one, but heavier than euro rubbers. It's not so soft, I would say 40°. It's a good choice for defensive and pushes play, but it's hard to loop with that one. I prefer the classic 729 FX Super.

Pretty good accuracy and chop. :-)

Well this rubber has pretty goog control. I use this for my bh which is good for keeping it in. I just hope it would have been a little bit faster. I thinking about changing this rubber coz it's too slow now and I'm getting used to faster swings. This can be really goog for beginners who want to learn control.

Not bad for a inexpensive tacky rubber. Really light weight. It is so light that compared to DHS Hurricane 2 or Dipper, the Sky Wing is probably 50% lighter. Compared to Avalox AVX Sterco, about 20% lighter. Playability -- surprisingly good for pushes and forehand chops. I played with it for 2 months and it held up fine. The shiny surface dulled and the speed slowed, but spin seems to be fine. Must be the soft sponge, giving rubber somewhat of a hybrid mechanical grip. Control though, became a problem after 2 months. Long distance loops became inconsistent, often netting more due to uneven speed. But heck, still a deal.

Review it!
